........a week makes.
Last week at this time we were sick with anxiety as we climbed aboard the emotional rollercoaster of grandparenthood.
After the initial and lengthy anxiety, came the euphoria of Ava's birth and our first meeting. The relief of knowing that she and her mum, my baby, were ok.
I was on the top of the big dipper as I posted my last blog and then swooped downhill as a message came thro to say the wee one had been whisked off to neo-natal care not long after our visit..........
..............she was in good hands, her slow entry to the world had caused some breathing difficulties and a few days in special care did the trick. Jenny, my daughter, also had the bonus of some extra enforced rest instead of being turfed out of hospital "as soon as the cord was cut".
They are now home and all getting used to being a family together. Phew.
So, I sort of fell out of blogland this week, I have missed many posts but will sneak back slowly now.
On Monday morning I found this on my doormat - from my lovely young friend, Lorna - it is my very own granny square/burp cloth.
And, somewhere in the last week I managed to add the borders to my hexie quilt - how did it get to be so big? It is measuring about 60 x 64, not too shabby.
This week has also been really busy with admin for my classes. My new programme had gone out a couple of weeks ago to my current classes so booking has been brisk - there will be two projects next session for my non beginner classes. I also sent out my Workshop programme and Beginners programme to those on my mailing list.........well, I have had unprecedented response to my beginners this year, I now only have 3 places left, for an August start!! I blame Kirsty Allsopp!! I even had a booking from a lady on holiday in New Zealand - wow!
Hope to catch up with you all soon, but I shall end by saying Happy Mothers' Day to my daughter!! Oh, and maybe just one gratuitous baby pic?
